Pair of 18th Century Elm & Ash Country Chairs
A superb pair of 18th Century elm and ash country chairs with spindle backs and rush seats. This beautiful pair of antique side chairs can be attributed to the North West of England, they are typical of turned chairs from the region and contain no square sawn parts. The turned uprights are generous in proportion and of simple straight form, as are the stretchers and spindles. This 'chubbiness' gives a homely, country appeal to this pair of antique chairs and allows the beautiful grain and patination to come through. There is a minor split to one of the back legs near the stretcher, this is more a surface split and does not affect the stability of the chair. Both chairs are in good, sturdy condition and stand well with no wobbles. The colour and patination of this pair of 18th Century elm and ash chairs are excellent. The rush seats on both chairs are a lovely mellow colour and in good order. This charming pair of English country chairs are ready to place in the home and would make a very decorative contribution to any interior design scheme.
